Our engineers like to talk about the most perfect sports car ever. Incredible performance, whilst being comfortable and fully suitable for everyday use. The 911 Turbo models continue this philosophy.
The 911 Turbo models feature incredible performance combined with breath taking driving dynamics. Even though the basic engine layout has not changed, every detail has been optimised, honed and refined.
For example, larger exhaust turbochargers and piezo injectors are used for the first time. Exhaust manifolds derived from the 911 GT2 RS improve responsiveness and efficiency, thanks to optimised flow ratios.
Charge-air cooling and engine air intake have been completely redesigned. Previously, air for the intercooler was supplied via side air intakes in the rear wings and the aspirated engine air via a tailgate grille. This principle has been swapped over in the current 911 Turbo models. This can also be seen from an additional two-tract air outlet for the intercoolers between the tailpipes in the rear apron. This enables more efficient air flow and charge-air cooling – and thus more power.
The result: impressive. And extremely sporty. In the 911 Turbo, the unit delivers 427kW (580PS), and 478kW (650PS) in the 911 Turbo S. The sprint performances are excellent. The 911 Turbo reaches 100km/h in 2.8 seconds with Launch Control and 200km/h in 9.7 seconds. The 911 Turbo S reaches 100km/h in 2.7 seconds with Launch Control and 200km/h in 8.9 seconds. Top speed: 320km/h in the 911 Turbo and 330km/h in the 911 Turbo S.
The completely redeveloped 8-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) allows extremely fast gear changes without interrupting the flow of power – not even by a millisecond. In comparison with previous generations, the new 8-speed PDK offers a perceptibly wider middle ground between comfort, performance and efficiency.
For your best time. And great times. Sport Chrono Package.
Adrenaline at the push of a button, goosebumps included: the standard Sport Chrono Package with mode switch. It allows an even sportier tuning of the chassis, engine and transmission. Also included in the package: the Porsche Track Precision app and a tyre temperature display. With the mode switch including Sport Response button on the steering wheel you can choose from five driving modes: ‘Normal’, ‘Sport’, ‘Sport Plus’, ‘Individual’ – allowing you to adapt the vehicle even more to your personal driving style – and ‘Wet mode’.
In Sport mode, the 911 Turbo models respond more dynamically. In Sport Plus mode, Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) and rear-axle steering ensure sportier damping, increased roll stability and more direct turn-in on entering corners. In addition, the Sport Chrono Package has three more functions. The first is Launch Control, which can be used to achieve the best possible standing start in Sport Plus mode.
The second function is the so-called motorsportderived gearshift strategy. In this mode, PDK is geared up for extremely short shift times and optimum shift points for maximum acceleration. For uncompromising performance that is ideal for the race track with noticeably active gearshifts. The third function: activated via the Sport Response button in the centre of the mode switch. The engine and transmission are then primed for the fastest possible unleashing of power. The result: maximum responsiveness – for a period of approximately 20 seconds.
Active Suspension Management (PASM).
PASM is an electronic damping control system that actively and continuously adjusts the damping force on each wheel, based on current road conditions and driving style – for reduced body roll and thus for improved comfort and increased dynamics.
PASM sports suspension.
For the first time in the 911 Turbo models, a particularly high-performance PASM sports suspension in combination with a body lowered by 10mm is optionally available. With firm springs, adapted anti-roll bars and a new tuning of the PASM dampers, the PASM sports suspension enables a further improvement in dynamic performance. Without major restrictions on driving comfort.
Porsche Traction Management (PTM).
The system has been continuously enhanced. It is now more robust and offers improved control. The result: increased precision and resilience.
Rear-axle steering enhances performance and suitability for everyday use in equal measure. The advantage for day-to-day driving: at low speeds, the system steers the rear wheels in the opposite direction to that of the front wheels. This leads to a virtual shortening of the wheelbase. The advantage for sporty driving: at high speeds, the system steers the rear wheels in the same direction as that of the front wheels.
Front-axle lift system.
The further development of the lift system on the front axle allows more ground clearance at the front of the 911 Turbo. More precisely, by 40mm and up to a speed of approx. 35km/h. The system therefore ensures that kerbs, ramps and car park entrances are a sporting challenge of the past.
Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC).
PDCC is an active roll stabilisation system. It suppresses the vehicle’s lateral body movement during dynamic cornering manoeuvres. A permanently controlled rolling torque distribution between the front and rear axles ensures that the handling is ideally adjusted for every driving conditions. For improved dynamic performance, even more neutral handling and increased ride comfort – whatever the speed.
